Realme C21: cheap, with great battery and triple camera

Realme’s range of cheaper mobiles continues to grow. Just two months ago, we knew the Realme C20 and now we have his successor, at least as far as numbering is concerned: the new Realme C21.

The Realme C21 follows the same trail as the rest of the models in its series, presenting itself as a very cheap mobile – around 100 euros to change – which this time has 13 megapixel triple camera and part of the 3 GB of RAM.

The cheapest, a little bit better

If we compare the specification table of the Realme C21 with that of the Realme C20, it is clear that the terminals are closely related. The design is also practically identical, although in truth they have some important differences that justify this Realme C21 adding a digit.

The Realme C21 is a new entry-level mobile that bets on the Helio G35, one of the most popular processors in the segment. On this occasion, it is accompanied by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.


On the screen, we have the combination that we have seen so many times in recent months in the segment: panel 6.5-inch HD + resolution LCD. The screen has a small centered notch where the front camera is incorporated, which is 5 megapixels and with an aperture of f / 2.2.

Behind, the Realme C21 has a design practically identical to that of the Realme C20, although there is an important difference: the camera module this time incorporates three lenses. The Realme C20 appeared to have more, but it actually had a single lens. The configuration of the new Realme C21 is triple: 13 megapixels f / 2.2, a 2 megapixel macro sensor and a 2 megapixel monochrome sensor, for portraits.


In terms of autonomy, the Realme C21 boasts a battery of 5,000 mAh capacity that charges in a classic way: with a MicroUSB cable and with a standard 10W charge. You can use said battery to charge other devices with the appropriate cable and reverse charging. The terminal has the fingerprint reader on the back and minijack.

Versions and prices of the Realme C21


The Realme C21 is official at the moment in Malaysia, and we have no news of its sale in other regions at the moment. There it is available in the colors blue and black and a single configuration of 3 + 32 GB, for 499 ringits, 102 euros to change.
